I made these cupcakes from a recipe from Magnolia Bakery in NYC. They also have an official published cookbook which I might have to buy. These cupcakes were delicious. I made both the frosting and the cupcakes. I had about 3 times as much frosting as I needed. I took them to a party where some people were familiar with the bakery. One person liked the ratio of frosting to cake that I used. Apparently the original has frosting 3 times as high. That did explain a lot about why I had so much leftover frosting. Perhaps for next time I will purchase a large piping tip and have a bit more frosting on each of these.
